Peanut Butter Banana Pudding

This decadent dessert is the love child of two southern favorites: a PB & Banana Sandwich and Banana Pudding. As if by magic, the rich homemade peanut butter pudding binds slices of pound cake and bananas together like a country-style tiramisu.

After a day in the fridge, all the elements meld together, with the cake absorbing moisture and flavor from the pudding, while the bananas become tender and ripe. Scooped into a bowl, it may look a mess, but with crunchy bits of peanut brittle on top it’s a heavenly dessert.

This peanut butter banana pudding is perfect for parties and cookouts because you can make it in one bowl and scoop it out at the table. Best of all, since it needs to be made a day in advance, it frees you up to enjoy dinner and dessert with your guests.

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding

Ingredients

milk eggs sguar peanut butter White Chocolate Wonderful bananas pound cake peanut brittle

Pound Cake and Banans Sliced

2 cups whole milk
5 egg yolks
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter
3 tablespoons potato starch
2 bananas, sliced 1/4″ thick
1 frozen pound cake (1 pound), sliced 1/2” thick
1 box Peanut Butter & Co. Original Peanut Brittle

Ingredients

Prepare the Fries

1. Pour the milk into a small saucepan over medium heat and warm up until it’s steaming, but do not let it boil.

2. Meanwhile, put the egg yolks and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk on high until the yolks are a shiny pale yellow and have doubled in volume (about 2 minutes). Stop the mixer then add the peanut butter and potato starch. Whisk until smooth and incorporated.

Stop the mixer then add the peanut butter and potato starch. Whisk until smooth and incorporated.

3. With the mixer turned off, pour one-third of the hot milk into the peanut butter mixture. Slowly turn up the speed of the mixer until the milk is incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Turn the mixer down to low speed and then slowly drizzle the rest of the hot milk into the mixer. Be very careful not to splash hot milk on yourself. It’s best if you can pour the milk down the side of the bowl so it doesn’t hit the whisk directly.

4. Once combined, pour the pudding mixture back into the pot and heat over low heat, using a silicon spatula to stir constantly, scraping up the bottom so that the pudding doesn’t burn. Once the mixture has thickened, turn off the heat and allow the pudding to cool to room temperature.

5. In a trifle bowl, or regular glass bowl, spread out a layer of pudding. Top with a layer of cake followed by a layer of bananas. Cover with more pudding, and then put down another layer of cake and bananas. Finish by pouring the rest of the pudding on top and smoothing it off.

    I have the perfect special topping … you can order these from NUTS.COM and they’re pretty cheap (sold in small amounts or in bulk):
    MINI REESES PIECES CANDIES!!! And, they are “mini” and would go wonderfully on top of this pudding … not too hard … they could replace the peanut brittle or simply be an amazing add-on TO the peanut brittle! NUTS.COM also sells MINI M&M’s in bulk, which would also work, but they would be far less magical.

      … >Both the bramins pgtparaoing and >teaching their young generation >that they r superior to other >communists, and the so-called >atheists saying only bramins r >the sole reason for all these >problems our country is facing Phantom, brahmin parents don’t have to teach brahmin children that they are superior, it is done by EVR baktas and DK. Without any government power for the last 50 years, if the Brahmins have super influence in Tamilnadu as the DK, EVRist propoganda says, then they must be superior.
